Suggestions on upgrading to a new configuration

We have this wireless configuration and would like to upgrade it to improve reliability and throughput:

Clients and WGB

|

wireless

|

350 (Bridge w/clients) -->Ethernet LAN--

|

wireless

|

350 Root Bridge (Access point) -->Ethernet LAN--

|

wireless

|

Clients and WGB

All with one SSID.

The equipment has worked so far, but the throughput has not been great (never more than 1Mbit between the lan segments and the wireless clients/WGB)

We thought to upgrade to the following configuration:

Clients and WGB

|

wireless

|

340 Root Bridge (Access Point) -->Ethernet LAN--

--Ethernet LAN--> 350 (Bridge w/o clients)

|

wireless

|

350 Root Bridge -->Ethernet LAN--

--Ethernet LAN--> 350 Root Bridge (Access point)

|

wireless

|

Clients and WGB

Do you think we can see an improvement in throughput (at least to 2/2.5Mbits)?

Would the 340 bridge, which we are able to get not paying for it, create incompatibilities or slow throughput? The bridge would be connected over the cabled lan and all three wireless links will have different frequencies and SSID, of course.

Thanks,

Luigi

Re: Suggestions on upgrading to a new configuration

Hi ,

This is very typical design

Clients ---AP--lan Bridge -----Wireless ---Bridge --Lan Ap clients

As 340 is in AP mode it will not create any issue .

Only in bridge mode AP340 and AP350 is not compatible .

You can control the throughtput between the bridges by careful design like

proper antenna and height , reduced coax cable etc
